L’École sans Dieu – Booklaunch und Ausstellung

  • Freies Museum 90 Bülowstraße Berlin, Berlin, 10783 Germany (map)

Ulrich Kochinke and the gallery fruehsorge contemporary drawings are pleased to invite you to the premiere of the catalogue "L’École sans Dieu" on February 21, 2014 at the Freies Museum Berlin.

Ulrich Kochinke is an artist and theologian with a particular affinity to the world of skateboarding. Over the past few years, Kochinke has produced a series of highly complex, collage-like graphite drawings under the collective title "L’École sans Dieu". For the first time ever, these drawings have now been brought together in a single publication. Within Kochinke's intricate drawings, the visual idioms of traditional religious artwork meet and merge with the pop-cultural codes of everyday life to create a new iconography of devotional pictures that are as baffling as they are disquieting. With draftsmanship and dexterity, the contemplation of the profane as well as the metaphysical coalesce into an ambivalently mysterious whole.
